"I had a large Radio Flyer wagon with the wooden rails when I was 6 years old (1960). We kept it at my aunt and uncle's house in Camden, NJ because we were there a lot because my father was ill and stayed at Cooper Hospital (right around the corner). I used to empty their coal bin into my Radio Flyer wagon and when I would come up from the basement, they would send me right back down to put all the coal back into the bin. Once I did that they would have to give me a bath (because I was as black as the coal) which was my ultimate goal as they had a HUGE 4 foot high claw tub that I loved to swim in with my sister. I share this story all the time because I did this every time we would go to their house. "
OUR SPECIAL WAGON my first radio flyer was when i was 5. i am now 62. my dad was stationed in turkey and he bought a radio flyer wagon to take me and my two brothers who were younger for walks. we came back to the states and went to my grandparent in alabama. my grandfather used that wagon to haul coal to heat the house. 12 years ago after my grandparents had both passed away, i drove from michigan to their house and there it was, our old radio flyer sitting under a carport full of coal! it was still in action after all those years. it was pretty rusty by then, but you could still see parts of our names he had written on it many years before
